“Meenakshi Sundareshwar really! may be its high time #karanjohar or any director could hv taken #tamilian for such script! You ought to get into the nuance our very traditions. it can’t be phoney every time! Be it #twostates, you have let us down! #hindicinema #Bollywood grow up,” wrote a person on Twitter. “Bollywood, I have one question for you – why can’t you leave us alone,” asked another person.

“I dont know when will bollywood understand that all Tamil’s are not brahmins. All Tamil’s are not veg eaters. Even brahmins wont dress and talk like this now a days. And not all tamil songs are folk songs. And stop ur obsession with our superstar,” read a tweet. “Less than 10 seconds into the video and I already know they did not do any research,” wrote a person, commenting on the wedding scene from the teaser.

“Insert Tamil songs, Tamil icons and Tamil culture (grossly stereotyped) to get some eyeballs, but the characters only speak in Hindi!! Chennai is just 2 hours away by flight from Bombay, one visit would have made the makers realise what an atrocity this is,” read another tweet.
